Scamming the Scammers

If you didn’t see this on Boing Boing, you really should check it out. We love how scamming/goofing on the so-called 419 scammers has become something of a Net pastime. This guy convinced a Nigerian “Advance Fee” scammer that he was too busy administering a $150,000 scholarship fund for talented woodcarvers to collect the money of his unknown dead relatives assets. Through a series of email exchanges, he convinces the scammer to carve (or at least have carved) a replica of a Commodore 64 computer. Hilarity ensues.
